I am delighted to talk briefly about a recent project I have been working on: visualising ‘Tales of the Trickster’ research project funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC). The project’s curator Bambo Soyinka approached me after she saw my TedxCardiff sketchnotes online and asked me to help her visualise the outcomes of workshops and the research process. The workshops involved writers and performers exploring questions such as ‘What is the role of the Trickster in storytelling and contemporary society?’ and ‘Using the Trickster as a tool for storytelling across cultural and creative traditions’.
I also took part in the second workshop which included a set of spoken word performances inspired by the Trickster. From these brilliant stories I made very concise sketchnotes as seen above and below.
